- Subject: using chown with SMB3 network share
I've read every web page I could find that was related to the subject, but still coming up empty. None of the standard solutions of updating /etc/passwd or /etc/group or removing same seem to work: The environment: Cygwin (patched less than 2 weeks behind current) running in a VM under a domain admin account. It runs as a service that is used for archive and restore of files. The network shares are Isilon exporting SMB2+. There are some default ACLs in place. * The user can create, modified, or delete any file put into the restore directory. No problem. * setfacl works to change permissions * the creation/owner of the file looks ok. There's no 'unknown group' message (typical question on StackExchange) * chown and chmod fail with 'invalid argument'. It doesn't whether I do it by a uid or a name, it fails with invalid argument * icacls can be used to give full access to a file, but it's not the same as changing ownership and changing permissions to match how they were when they got archived.. * chown/chmod work fine on the local NTFS filesystem under the VM, just not against the Isilon SMB share. Thoughts on where to go from here?
